Professor Weisbart was interesting, to say the least. His lectures were really conceptual (he didn't do alot of computations/examples) but he really does try and explain concepts to you. But if you have a short attention span, lecture will be really boring. He's pretty approachable, and will answer any question you have. His grading scale was 25% each midterm, 10% homework, and a 40% final, but if you get an average of 50% on your total homework grade, your final can be worth 100% of your grade, meaning he'll choose the higher score.

Contrary to what other people say, his practice problems were not exactly verbatim on the midterms, at least this year it wasn't. Instead, the key ideas of each practice problem will be used some way or another on the exams. So don't go trying to just memorize the answers to the practice problems, but try to understand how to do each problem (like formulas, equations, ways to find stuff, etc) because most likely you're going to have to do the same thing on the tests.

All in all, pretty far professor, the 100% final saved my grade (i got a B+) because I did what I just said not to do above, which got me like a 32/80 on the first midterm. It really helps if you have a good TA, as they'll most likely be more readily available to help you figure out some concepts. The only reason I did so well was because of my TA (shout out to Sudesh)

The person below me probably never paid attention in class and probably failed because Professor Weisbart is literally the BEST professor that I have ever had and he explains concepts in such an easy-to-understand way! I just took his 32A class and it was one of the most interesting classes that I have ever taken. That being said, I was there for his explanation about vectors and he gave at least 3 different ways to understand what they are and explained each and every way amazingly.

Many students are just used to memorizing, but Professor Weisbart actually teaches how to think about the subject. I didn't do very well on the first midterm. After that, I went to him to get help and he was so accommodating and willing to meet with me. He gave me the confidence I needed to figure things out and then I ACED the second midterm.

I am pretty sure my final exam went well too. If you have a chance to take any of Professor Weisbart's classes, I would definitely suggest TAKING ONE (or as many as you can)! He is the best professor that I have ever had at UCLA. Not to mention, he's hot ;)
